Upgrading from 7.0.6 to 7.1.2

L4 Transporter



I need to upgrade from 7.0.6 to 7.1.2. The image base is 7.1.0 right?? i saw a lot of 7.0.1-bxxx, why??

any known bug or big change in this 7.1.2???

7.1.0 is indeed the base image. If the software image ends in -bxx then this means it is a beta image of software. I do not recommend you upgrade to a beta version of software.


As always make sure you check the release notes for any known issues on these software versions. You can also see feature changes and default behaviour changes here.


Also please take a look here for more information on 7.1.0:

We do have a 7.1.1 installed. No issues so far. Just go for it)))



Can i go to 7.1.2 directly, if i have downloaded the 7.1.0 base??? or it happens the same like 7.0.x that its mandaroty to install 7.0.1 before going to 7.0.x??

Please see instructing here:




For example, if you want to upgrade from PAN-OS 6.0.13 to PAN-OS 7.1.2, you must: Download and install PAN-OS 6.1.0 and reboot. Download and install PAN-OS 7.0.1 and reboot (7.0.1 is the base image for the 7.0 release, not 7.0.0). Download PAN-OS 7.1.0 (you do not need to install it). Download and install PAN-OS 7.1.2 and reboot.


Thats not correct. I have upgraded several firewalls to 7.0.6, and it was mandatory to install 7.0.1 We tried to download the 7.0.6 having 7.0.1 downloaded and we got an error " because we got an error donwloading the version 7.0.6 


Error: pan_mgmtop_post_process_swimage(pan_ops_common.c:9896): The required '7.1' base image must be loaded before this image can be load
ed. You do not have to install or run the base image, only download it. Once the base is loaded, re-download your target image.

I tried to download the minor in the passive node and now it works. 🙂 perfect. thanks  a lot
